Operations resume at Naval Base SD after report of threat

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8/CNS) - A bomb threat at Naval Base San Diego Thursday morning that prompted officials to advise personnel to stay clear of Pier 7 has been cleared.

Authorities at the base commonly known as 32nd Street said the threat referenced the vicinity of Pier 7. It was reported around 9:15 a.m., and remained under investigation, according to Navy public affairs.

"Dogs have completed the initial search with negative results. NCIS is still at the scene and determining what to do next," said Brian O'Rourke-PIO Naval Base SD.

The threat prompted base officials to secure the area. Sailors and other base personnel were asked to avoid the area until further notice, according to a message posted on Naval Base San Diego's Facebook page.

Base officials say this all started when someone found a written note near Pier 7.

The Navy has said there have been twelve separate bomb threats since November of 2015 contributing to work stoppage.

The bomb threats have mostly been posted on portable toilets or walls inside a ship.

The Navy released a statement seeking the public's help in finding the person or persons involved in the threats. A $5,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of the individual(s) responsible.
